Hi friends! Last time we were talking about success and creating results. The journey to creating results can seem so smooth until a pit fall comes your way. A pit fall is something that must change in you first in order to move forward and create the life you truly desire. Lets take a look and see which one of these pit falls best describes you and how you will overcome it.
The first pit fall is false pride and ego. False pride and ego is over-estimating and compensating your abilities. When you size up your competition to match their credentials, when you obsess to be better than everyone else and strive to achieve results, when the results and success that you have aren’t good enough, when you think you are already better than everyone else and don’t need any more skills and training because you already know it; these are all classic signs of false pride and ego. Just remember one thing, pride always comes before a fall.
****Another important side note to the previous post from earlier in the week: the blessing previously discussed, came we truly believe because we decided to participate in the year of the Shemitah. We forgave those that owed us debts and prayed to be forgiven and released of those debts in which we owed. We have covered and sealed everything with special prayer and anointing oil believe that God would truly bless us for listening and applying the instructions He had given us. It really does work, now we are receiving blessings right and left! It has been nothing but a bunch of open doors from here! We are just walking through the doors and enjoying what God has been doing without striving and controlling the situation. All we have done is 1) only followed the directions and instructions that God shared with us and nothing else. 2) We applied the instructions and took action. 3) When we were not doing the instruction in front of us we learned to rest, have fun, and LIVE! We are embracing life so freely and hearing from Him so much more clearly. We cannot begin to fathom what is to come next, it’s going to be such an exciting year! I feel honored to share in all of this with you friends! Until next time!!!!
What we say holds truth and power. Our mouths are a portal that opens the doors of things to come whether positive or negative. Even the images of what we watch and listen to from others has tremendous bearing. We don’t always think about what we watch on the television or what we listen to on the radio, next thing we know our mind is printed with images and words that we repeated and heard. What we say and do now truly counts as mentioned in my posting earlier this week. What we speak either works for us or against us. We could innocently say something we are not thinking or meaning to attract. This also goes for words spoken over others. Remember what you confess is enough to free a person or to interlock both of you into bondage. If you are believing for yourself or someone you know to be freed from bondage and negativity…it is important to not only forgive you and them and to also seek forgiveness from them, but also guard your heart and mind of images and thoughts that might separate you from the blood of Christ.
A couple of times a month, I sing on our praise team at church. This past Sunday happened to be one of those weekends that I served. Morning had come way too soon and all I longed for was a few more hours of sleep. My husband had to be at work early that day and my daughter I had to wake up out of a sound sleep. Though it was not the start to my morning I had been hoping for, I was guardedly optimistic that the remainder of the day would get better.
I dropped my husband off at his job. It was a particularly busy day at work and him and many other employees had been requested to show up early for their shift. Most Sundays, my husband isn’t due into work until 4 PM; today was clearly an exception to the rule. I look back at my daughter through the inside car mirror and realize all I had given her was some cheerios! We are usually not so in a hurry that she doesn’t receive a proper breakfast. I pulled over to grab her a breakfast sandwich that we could share and proceeded to head towards the church.
